LENSPEN … the easiest way to keep your lens clean!
Have you ever struggled with trying to clean your camera lens? Sure you can use your handy cleaning cloth, but those stubborn fingerprints, smudges, dust and dirt will likely still persist. Unfortunately, that cleaning cloth that you always carry with you seems to make things worse; especially with oils from your hand and grime trapped within the cloth from frequent use.
That is why I highly recommend LensPen. Although the LensPen makes a number of different products, I personally like the LensPen Original. It has been around for over 20 years and trusted by professional photographers worldwide. In fact, NASA uses LensPen products on the International Space Station!
So, what makes the LensPen Original so great? For starters, it is completely self-contained and easy to carry, measuring less than 4.5in/11.4cm long and weighing less than an ounce. On one end is the Retractable Natural Brush that safely removes dust, dirt and grit. On the other end is a rubber based, ultra soft, concave chamois Cleaning Tip surface that is impregnated with LensPen’s proprietary invisible carbon cleaning compound that absorbs grease, grime and fingerprints. Since this is a dry carbon cleaning compound, there are no liquids to spill, drip or dry out and the screw-on cap safely protects the cleaning tip when not in use.
According to the manufacturer, each LensPen Original has an extra-long life with up to 500+ cleanings. It is non-toxic, environmentally friendly, and replenishes automatically with every use.
Oh, and did I mention it is easy to carry? About the same length as a ballpoint pen, the LensPen Original fits neatly in your pocket or camera bag and with its large capacity clip molded into the side of the pen, it can easily be clipped on your camera strap.
The LensPen Original retails for under $10 at B&H Photo and, although it cleans almost anything, it obviously can’t clean everything. But, for the cost, it will prove to be one of your favorite pieces of equipment.
